Tutoring @ Laney

Welcome to Laney College's Tutoring Programs

5/19/20: BECOME A LANEY TUTOR!

We are recruiting Laney students with strong communication skills and great study skills to become peer tutors for the Fall for English, Math, English for Speakers of Other Languages, and Chemistry

Why become a tutor?

TRANSFER
Our tutors have tremendous success getting into their first-choice universities

BECOME A PROFESSIONAL
All tutors receive training in tutoring techniques, and many tutors find that tutoring opens the door to more professional work

A FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE
Tutors can fit their work around their class schedules.

BUILD SKILLS
Helping other students through their learning processes will challenge you to find new ways to explain and conceptualize your discipline

FEEL GOOD
Students are appreciative of your help, and understanding if you don’t know the answer to every question. Show them how to look it up!

MAKE SOME EXTRA MONEY
The job pays $14.14 an hour, and most tutors start out working 3-4 hours a week, though you can work up to 20 hours/week if your availability permits.

What steps should I take if I am interested?
1. Have a “B” or better in the subject you want to tutor.
2. Get a recommendation from your professor.
3. Email the tutor coordinator to set up an appointment for an informal interview and to answer any questions you have about the opportunity: Ian Latta ilatta@peralta.edu

All Tutoring has moved online or over the phone

The tutor’s duties are described here:

  1. Help students with the technical side of their online, hybrid, Canvas, or otherwise computer-based coursework. Try to stick to helping students to learn the online tools like Canvas or google apps, rather than helping students with the actual content of the course.
  2. If other questions arise, including how to use computers or other technical, IT-type help, feel free to help the student or point the student to other resources they can use to get help, such as the Peralta IT help desk. Don’t feel like you have to be able to answer every question. Your area of expertise is how to succeed in an online class.
  3. Participate in community of practice by making a list of all the questions students ask you and contributing to repository of resources and best practices for future tutors.
